Lincoln & York’s New Espresso Pods

Innovative coffee roasting company, Lincoln & York, is one of the first UK coffee roasters to start producing its own range of espresso pods, offering a traditional espresso, a blend of Central and South American, East African and Indian beans. The 14g pods will also be available in Fair Trade and Fair Trade decaffeinated form.

James Sweeting, director at Lincoln & York explains, “The individual foil laminate pouches ensure the coffee retains its freshness for at least 12 months. At this stage the pods are aimed predominantly at the OOH market and can be used in coffee shops for specialty coffees or in pubs which have low coffee usage - instead of opening a big bag of coffee staff can simply pop a pod into the filter holder.”

Lincoln & York creates coffee products for a wide variety of clients in the UK and Europe, ranging from many high street names to the coffee shop, hotel, contract caterers and retail sectors. The company sources the finest raw ingredients from around the world and provides services ranging from expert consultation through to packaging the finished product.

Liquid Planet Organic Tea Packaging

Liquid Planet, founded in Missoula in 2003, recently released their 100% organic tea packaged in single serve, fully biodegradable and compostable sachets and clear overwraps.

Although tea companies have been packaging organic tea in recyclable boxes before, this is the first time a tea company has placed clear, single-serve organic tea on the retail market that is environmentally friendly from the tea leaf itself to the last ounce of packaging. Liquid Planet Tea is 100% USDA organic certified and KSA kosher certified premium full leaf tea enclosed in a non-bleached, biodegradable and compostable sachet. The sachet is wrapped in a fully biodegradable and compostable cellulose overwrap and then packed into recyclable cartons made from post-consumer material in a facility that offsets its energy use with wind energy credits.

The especially unique component of the Liquid Planet packaging is the NatureFlexT cellulose overwrap. Although it appears like traditional plastic, instead of oil-based materials it is comprised of a naturally-occurring plant starch, making it biodegradable, compostable and sustainable.

Liquid Planet is a Missoula based business dedicated to providing products good for the body, spaces that feed the soul and profits that give back to the earth. The company was founded in Missoula in 2003 by a University of Montana music professor and prides itself on educating the consumer about all things beverage.
